information needed urgently!

hi all, i'm flying to reykjavik tonight and i've left planning to the last minute so i hope you can help answer some of my questions -

- i understand that the exchange rate at the airport is not great so i was wondering if banks will be open on saturday for me to change some currency?

- does the blue lagoon accept payment in euros and would i be better off changing kronors for payment beforehand?

- where would be a good place for me to buy a map for driving around the country? i'm planning to get a prepaid sim - would google maps be sufficient?

thanks so much!

You do not need to exchange much as cards (debit or credit) are accepted everywhere, there is an ATM at the airport as well.

Many places will accept Euros but it is up to you if you accept their exchange rate,

There is a store in the arrival hall, you can buy good maps there, google maps are fine if you want to get lost.

The difference of the rate is 1% worse in the airport. That´s all.
